NV Series 4 or 5 Way Toggle Switch

The NV series is 4 or 5-direction switch-based joystick (4 directions + push button). Contrary to most navigators currently on the market, the NV series provides enhanced tactile feedback in 4 directions plus push button. This results in improved haptics and extremely precise control associated with a compact size (bushing dia. 16 mm). With its chrome plated metal case and IP69K sealing level, the NV series withstands all types of adversity including water, frost, dust, sand, and hydrocarbons. Designed for the harshest environments, the NV series is extremely robust and maintains its tactile effect even during excessive shock or vibrations.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Positive tactile feedback in all directions
  • Sealed to IP69K
  • Compact and low profile
  • Robust: shock, vibration and salt spray resistant
  • Three actuator shapes
  • Numerous actuator colours
